Sarracenia x Lady Bug

(1 review) Write a Review
This hybrid was created by Larry Mellichamp at the University of North Carolina in Charlotte as part of the Bug Series, which also included Bug Bat, Doodle Bug, June Bug, Love Bug, and Red Bug. Lady Bug has short curved red pitchers that open inward toward the center of the plant. The hood is red with white dots, just like a lady bug!

    Cute Little Plants

    These plants are so delightful, I bought several since they remind me so much about Lady Bugs: with their bright red backs and with white spots all over. They are on the smaller size but they do not lose any interest by taller plants beside them.
